With a unique sound that seamlessly traverses genres such as the blues, classic rock and heavy metal, and influenced by The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix and Stone Temple Pilots, Barefaced Liar seek to create music that adheres to yet defies convention. Formed in Delhi, 2002 by Akshay Chowdhry and Sumant Balakrishnan, their self-titled debut album—with its blues-based modern rock riffs and sing along choruses—was voted one of the Top 10 albums of the year by Rolling Stone Magazine. Since 2008, the band's main focus has been on taking their live show to all parts of India while continuing to compose and record their own music. They opened for the legendary Metallica in 2011.
